For the 18th century official, see Mizuno Tadakuni (kanjo bugyo).

Mizuno Tadakuni was among the most influential rôjû of the Edo period, serving in that position in the 1840s and effecting a number of controversial policies.

Tadakuni served as Kyoto shoshidai from 1826/11/23 to 1828/11/22.

He attempted to do away with the kabunakama guilds, in order to combat monopolies, but this and many of his other reforms were resisted so strongly by the merchants of Osaka (and others) that he was forced to abandon his efforts.

Personal and political conflicts with Manabe Akikatsu led to Manabe's resigning as rôjû in 1843.
